Nigella Express is often regarded as the most iconic of Nigella Lawson’s TV series, but the accompanying book tends to be forgotten over her other tomes like “Kitchen” & “Bites”. But for us, Express is the embodiment of simple, quick cooking and the real classic Nigella. Every recipe we’ve ever tried has been excellent. We purchased the book when we were students, and the time savvy recipes coupled with simple, easy to source ingredients were the perfect alternative to endless Pot Noodles and beans on toast. The pages are well and truly stuck together and full of dried in food, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
